Before installing and first using the dishwasher, read this instruction booklet carefully, including its hints and
warnings. To avoid unnecessary mistakes and accidents, it is important to ensure that all people using the
dishwasher are thoroughly familiar with its operation and safety features. Save these instructions and make
sure they remain with the dishwasher if it is moved or sold, so that everyone using it through its life can be
properly informed on appliance use and safety.
Installation and servicing
All installation work should be done by a qualified or
competent person. Any servicing must be carried by
a qualified and authorised engineer. Work performed
by persons with inadequate knowledge may adversely
affect the satisfactory functioning of the product and
may cause personal injury or damage. Before any work
is carried out on the dishwasher, it must be isolated
from the electrical supply. To do this the power plug
must be removed from the wall socket.
Water connection should be made via an easily
accessible tap.
The power cord must be plugged into an earthed
socket, which need to be easily accessible. Permanent
installation must only be carried out by an authorised
electrician or competent person.
If the power cable is damaged, it must be replaced
by a special cable or assembly available from the
manufacturer's service agent.
Make sure that the power cable is not nipped or other-
wise damaged and that the hoses do not get crushed
or kinked when moving the dishwasher when installing
or cleaning etc.
Servicing and repairs must be carried out by a service
company authorised by the manufacturer. Always
insist on genuine spare parts. Never try to repair the
dishwasher yourself.
